A commissioned piece by the owner of this pooch, a Brussels Griffon called Royal. Apparently George Lucas was a big fan of these dogs and modelled the Ewok on their furry faces. The owner is also a big Wes Anderson fan, so I thought I would take my inspiration from the dining room wallpaper in the film The Royal Tenenbaums.
Measures 3x4 feet, and has since been wonderfully offset by a big gilt frame. Oil on canvas.

I made this painting from a low-res photo of my son at the playground. I was using one of those camera apps so I decided to imitate the polaroid style it produced. Oil on canvas.
